Gorgeous and moving
I'm a big fan of Cy Twombly so the cover of this book immediately caught my attention. After I downloaded it and saw the depth and variety of this series of work I was thrilled. While at first glance the style may look repetitive each time I view the book different paintings capture my attention and draw me in, pulling me into their depths in a meditative way that goes beyond the surface of the canvas - just as the title would suggest.
I will definitely look for an opportunity to view these works in person as well as exploring Margaret's other art.
